Rear View Mirror Problem - Solved

Many Street owners seem to have a problem with the mirrors - not being able to see behind them enough. I called in my HD shop and was quoted around £40 for a set of CHROME mirror extenders. As my bike is black and I don't like chrome that was a no go. Add that to the fact that I can't afford £40 and you will understand why I left without ordering any.

So anyway, I found these on Ebay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Motorcycl...72.m2749.l2649

They do the job for under a tenner. I had to saw about 1/4 inch off the allen bolt that secures them to the bike, probably because the Street's handlebars are a smaller diameter than other Harley's? but they fit easily and work a treat - am well pleased.

Those look about the same as the Krator extensions that a lot of guys around here use. Some people use them in conjunction with the long stem or Tribal mirrors to see a bit more.


If I recall correctly, the machine screws with the H-D extenders have the wrong threads to work with our bikes.

We ended up going the expensive route and bought new HD black long stem mirrors ($40 a piece) from our local HD dealer. We could have bought them from HD online but we have a 10% discount for in-store purchases so though less convenient, it's slightly cheaper to get things from the dealer even if they have to order it.

Dunno - I never got that far at the dealership - they just looked in a book and told me the price so I presumed they would have fitted. The thtreads are fine though on these I ordered.
